University of Wyoming’s molecular biology program provides students with the education
and research experience needed to excel in biological research and biotechnology.
The emergence of molecular biology has blurred the distinctions previously drawn between
biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, zoology, and botany by identifying the many
common, unifying principles that are the essence of all life forms. The goal of the
Department of Molecular Biology at the University of Wyoming is to introduce students
to these principles and undertake fundamental research to extend the frontiers of
But our students are prepared for more than rural America. The world is more complex,
and solving problems and being competitive in the work place requires new skills and
new solutions. Our molecular biology degree students are educated with tools for success
in the 21st Century. They are as comfortable working in the small towns of Wyoming
as they are in Los Angeles, Houston, or New York City.
Faculty and Staff
The Molecular Biology Department’s Seminar Program is one of the very best on campus. We make a strong effort to bring in visiting scientists
who can provide an entertaining, enlightening, and current research report on an important
area of molecular biology.
The MOLB Friday Seminar roster for Spring 2023 has concluded. Summer Seminar is set
